LONDON, October 15th, 2015 —: Music icon, multiple GRAMMY® Award-winner and multi-platinum selling artist Janet Jackson has added Prague, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo to her highly anticipated European leg of the Unbreakable World Tour. The UNBREAKABLE WORLD TOUR, which commenced in North America on August 31st to rave reviews and accolades, will see the return of one of the world’s most influential entertainers on the live stage, in support of her album, Unbreakable, from Rhythm Nation/BMG. Unbreakable, which just became the music icon’s Seventh #1 album, made music history by making Janet Jackson one of only three artists to achieve a #1 album in the past four decades. The UK leg will start on the 30th March 2016 at Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena and play The O2 London on 31st March, The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on the 4th April, culminating at Manchester Arena on 5th April.

Last week, Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation record label and its distribution partner BMG released Unbreakable worldwide, the superstar’s first studio album in seven years. The album was released to critical acclaim and immediately raced to the #1 position on Billboard’s 200 Chart. That same week, the Queen of Pop has also earned her first nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.


“Unbreakable” is available now on iTunes. The initial single release, “No Sleeep,” raced to #1 on Billboard’s Adult R&B chart where it is currently reigning for an eighth week, breaking Ms. Jackson’s previous record on this chart (Her “I Get Lonely” led the chart for five consecutive weeks in 1998).  The Queen of Pop surprised her fans recently by releasing through social media another track from the album, “BURNITUP!” (Feat. Missy Elliott). Dance floor-jam “BURNITUP!” opens Janet’s UNBREAKABLE WORLD TOUR show, which continues to sell out as dates go on sale.


The Unbreakable album constitutes a historic re-teaming of the iconic performer, now a holder of 46 record chartings with producer/songwriter superstars Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.  The Unbreakable release comes on the 30th anniversary of their groundbreaking collaboration on Ms. Jackson’s “Control” album.
